Since Halloween vibes are radiating in our office, we decided to hand off some pumpkins and carving tools to our designers in our ARTLOFT. Jamie Browne, Aaron Mason and Jeremy Parker are usually generating rad t-shirt designs, but today these art wizards teamed up to trade their micron pens for a carving knife. Take a look at their creative process, messy carving, and our new pumpkin decoration for the office.

In Munich it’s all about the Bavarian charm. If you like beer, you won’t be disappointed because this is hops’ paradise. Not to mention it’s traditional beer festival, the Oktoberfest, which takes place every year from late September to early October. But this is certainly not the only reasons why Munich is the second largest tourist destination in Germany after Berlin. The city hides some amazing spots that we’ll reveal to you below, with the help of Sascha, our Volcom Store Manager, and his team.
Where to have a drink?
At Super Danke! all drinks are strictly vegan and their smoothies are not only healthy but also extremely delicious. Besides smoothies they also offer freshly squeezed juices and a special 5-day Super Cleanse treatments. Hollywood stars love them, hardly any top model passing by the area can live without them anymore - and no, we don't mean drugs even though the smoothies in this so-called Organic Liquid Store can be highly addictive. The owners also manage a night club and what's better than detoxing after a heavy night out?!
Locals love their beer gardens and the Augustiner Keller ranks high in the list of the most favorite ones. There’s more than enough outdoor seating space for everyone, delicious beer and if it rains you can sit down in their house cellar where they used to store beer back in the days. These two words alone should be enough to convince you to come here: Augustiner Beer. Munich loves Augustiner Beer and you will too. The place is perfectly located close to the central bus station and the train station where also many hostels are located.
What happens when Bavarian culture meets the urban flair of metropolitan high life like London or New York? Well locals love the Flushing Meadows rooftop bar for its Munich Vodka, local liqueurs and some seriously delicious cocktails. And the view, oh the view... Hotel bars have a bad reputation but don't let that get into your way. The view on a sunny day is stunning and the cocktails are not just very tasty but also very unique. The inside of the bar feels like a large living room and on a cold day there is a fireplace to warm you up - if the drinks fail to have that effect on you.
Tea To Go, a little British outpost in the very center of Munich has become a meeting point for tea lovers or just for those who miss their British Empire. This small and cozy café, located in the Fünf Höfe, offers a fine selection of teas, cakes and British specialties (scones, clotted cream).
Where to eat something?
If you don’t know about the Munich way of living and the typical Munich crowd, at Kochspielhaus you can learn a lot about it. The restaurant is very trendy (so is its crowd), the quality of both drinks and meals outstanding, but nothing for the poor people. They use mainly regional ingredients for the meals and the aim is not only to serve delicious but also healthy meals and drinks. Even the simplest dishes are of high quality. And after your dinner you can get some delicious sweet treats from their house bakery. Life is good here if you can afford it. Plus the burgers are fantastic.
Locals love Nero Pizza & Lounge because of the cool location and interior design, tasty pasta and fresh pizzas with interesting toppings and crispy thin crusts. The atmosphere is great, the waiters are awesome and the service is first rate. All in all, a great dining experience. An excellent choice if you're looking for great pizza (not to mention reasonably priced) in Munich.
Cosmogrill is designed like a small bar with intimate atmosphere and great food even at late hours. Located just a couple of meters away from the boulevard of Maximilianstraße this small burger shop offers what stands in sharp contrast to fast or even junk food. Only the best organic meat, fresh ingredients and a cool interior make Cosmogrill one of the best places to enjoy a real burger.
Where to party?
Live club, bar and disco - Milla wants to be everything but ordinary. The size of the room doesn't really fit for a disco and it is slightly skewed so hold on tight to your drinks. The furniture was bought on flea markets and fits perfectly to the vintage style. Milla used to be a long kept secret but is these days one of the best locations for indie concerts or jazz jam sessions. It feels more like 90's Berlin than modern Munich and it’s probably the best place in town for underground concerts and everything but mainstream.
Rockers, reggae fans, emos, goths and heavy metal addicts - Backstage is Munich's most alternative club. It is everything, club, concert hall, beer garden, event location. It is everything but posh. This is one of the best alternatives to the very upscale and hip nightlife scene of Munich. Basically everyday there is a concert here, from ska to hard rock. And during summer times you will find a nicely secluded beer garden with untypical music and more untypical opening hours (no curfew!).
Bar 45 is still a newcomer but has reached an infamous reputation for being the one of the most outgoing and wild bars in the university quarter. Its owners wanted to create a “Munich” bar and so there’s an entire wall of fame with names of famous locals. At night people enjoy the drinks and loud music to dance to. There are many bars around but this place offers the best of both worlds: really good drinks you would expect from a bar and loud party music and a small dance floor you would normally find only in clubs. Highly recommended if you are up for a wild night.
Where to experience something different?
Gärtnerplatz is where the cool kids hang out. The main square of the former gay/lesbian scene in Munich is nowadays the main spot of the trendiest part in town. Meet your friends, have a picnic or just a beer, start your night out in one of dozens of bars around you or walk to the river and have a BBQ there. This square is not only nice to look at, it is also the ideal starting point for exploring the trendy area of the "Glockenbachviertel"
Eisbach makes Munich the river surfing capital of the world, because it's the birthplace of this unusual sport. And while the city and its inhabitants are not world-famous for being trendy and hip, this place certainly is. When you meet men in wet suits, walking around barefoot and carrying surf boards, then you are very close to one of the most visited places in Munich by anyone who has the slightest passion for surfing. Where else would you find people surfing right in the middle of a city park?
A couple of years ago the re-naturalization of the riverbed was successfully finished and ever since the Isar river has become an important part in people's lives again. Once there you won't believe you're in the middle of a big city. It feels like a short holiday lying on a towel facing the river and enjoying the sunshine. Or you can meet up with your friends and have a little BBQ. Why not ride a bike along the river and just embrace the beauty of nature.
What used to be an old factory space is now a cool bar & restaurant but especially the place to be if you want to get some beach feeling in the city. At Beach 38°, pack your swim shorts and get on the court. Definitely the best place for playing Beach Volleyball and after an exhausting game you can order a well-deserved and very tasty cocktail. Cool place!
Then last but not least – take a ride through Munich’s Volcom Store and update your wardrobe with some of the season’s new arrivals.
